We are both retired from work in academia; Chuck teaching biology, Janet in administration. Chuck enjoys recreational bicycling, beer and wine. Janet is a former folk dancer and especially likes crafts and talking to people. We speak Spanish having served in the Peace Corps in Colombia. We love to travel in order to learn about the people, history and culture of different parts of the world -- and to experience new foods! In Quebec and France we also hope to find people who will patiently talk to us in French so we can improve our facility with "la belle langue."
